Cannot start orion

Hi,
I have downloaded orion and copied the tools.jar file from the jdk but when I try to run it with
java -jar orion.jar
I get the following error:
Error starting HTTP-Server: Address already in use: JVM_Bind
Could anyone explain what this means and how I fix it
Thanks

It could be that your port 80 is being used by another webserver.
You can change the port number in the file %ORION_HOME%\config\default-web-site.xml
You could try using port 8080 for instance.

I think there is some improvement - I changed the post to 8080 and orion is now initialized without any errors but when I go to the
http://localhost
I get page cannot be found error?
I take this means the server is not really running?

Now, because you have changed the port, you must do <a href="http://localhost<b rel="nofollow">:8080</b>/" target="_blank">http://localhost:8080/ to access the default page from your browser.
